QuarterFive Fundraising Recruitment is a specialist agency for charities and fundraisers.

We provide clients with access to the best fundraising talent in the sector, and offer candidates expert support in securing their next fundraising role.

Whether you spend your days writing bids, approaching companies, cultivating the wealthy, organising events, creating direct marketing campaigns, engaging communities, promoting legacies, or directing a mix of the above, we’ll understand what you’re talking about and be able to advise you on finding the job or candidate you really want.

We focus exclusively on fundraising recruitment and are committed to high quality service over high volume business. Generic, mass recruitment we are not.

What our clients say

Our team

Ed Cherry

07784 611811

He loves working closely with CEOs and SMTs to shape job briefs, build senior recruitment campaigns and utilise his extensive fundraising networks to engage the very best fundraising leaders for Q5’s clients.

He has recruited Directors of Fundraising and senior teams heads for organisations including Action Against Hunger, ActionAid, Age UK, Alzheimer’s Society, Asthma UK, Breast Cancer Now, Cancer Research UK, Crisis, Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Depaul UK, Fight For Sight, Frontline, International Crisis Group, Mind, mothers2mothers, Plan UK, Scope, Sense, Shelter, Sightsavers, Stonewall and Terrence Higgins Trust.

Outside of work he loves walking, music, cooking and travel. His obsession with fermenting home grown chillies into violently hot sauces is not shared by his family.

Martin Bartlett

07850 352780

People, process and gardening are what get Martin out of bed in the morning. He loves enabling our consultants to work at their best – to thrive and grow on their own terms rather than as cogs in a faceless agency.

He is also a dab hand at recruiting senior roles across a range of fundraising disciplines, for organisations that include Action Against Hunger, Action for Children, Action on Hearing Loss, Alzheimer’s Society, Amnesty International UK, Arthritis UK, CALM, Concern Worldwide, FareShare, Fight for Peace, Housing for Women, International Crisis Group, the Prince’s Trust, Right To Play, the Silver Line, Stonewall, Sue Ryder, War Child and West London Zone.

Emily Birch

Lead Consultant
07851 879269

Emily finds the charity-commercial crossover fascinating and never tires of talking to candidates and clients about their latest successes. She enjoys helping people secure their first job in the sector as much as working with experienced fundraisers on senior, strategic roles. Emily has recruited for a wide range of organisations, including Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, Action for Children, Shelter, Maggie’s, Crisis, Centrepoint, the NPSCC and Football Beyond Borders.

A sport psychology graduate and Ironman triathlete (tattoo pending), she can often be heard banging on about DOMS and junk miles,  before binging on chocolate raisins.

Joe Hartley

Research Lead
07497 806406

His keen eye for detail and systematic collection of fundraising recruitment data from across the sector enables us to provide our clients with comprehensive insight into salary averages, team structures and trends.

When not competing for SE London-based running club Kent AC, he is making incredibly poor choices in office snacks – fondue flavoured crisps being a recent disappointment.

Janice Hardy

Janice Hardy

Principal Consultant
07939 142426

She brings 12 years senior recruitment experience to her role and has recruited public fundraisers at all levels for leading charities.

Outside work, she spends time with her unruly rescue dog and plays in goal for her five-a-side football team.
